so im going to get the gtx 660 ti but im wondering:

1 are we going to change to higher resolutions in games like 2560x1600 in the next 4-5 years???


2 should I get a 7950 or buy a cheap card then upgrade later IF we change to 2560x1600?




all coments and thoughts are appreciated!!
thanks! :)
 
Solution
Even if you bought a 660ti now, do you think that you'd be happily gaming with it in 4-5 years? That card doesn't have that kind of lifespan vs. the rate of increasing game demands.

If you're shopping now I'd recommend the 7950 or save another paycheck and go for a 670.

You probably won't see 2560x1600+ becoming ubiquitous anytime soon since there isn't a major push for televisions to go beyond 1920x1080 at the moment and television resolution is what has pushed 16:9 to become more common in PC monitors than 16:10.

No matter what card you buy today you will have to upgrade it in 3 years MAX.

he asked what is the gpu that can let him play bf3 in good resolution and save some money at the same time so thats why i told him to buy it , and btw u can play bf3 in high settings or even ultra smoothly with the GTX 560ti .
 


Assuming you do not accept anything less than high or ultra graphic settings.

My Radeon HD 5850 is 3 years old now and it is still capable of playing games today (1920x1200 resolution). I'm not a hardcore gamer so medium graphics quality is fine. If I don't get enough performance with everything set to medium quality, then I'll upgrade.
 


Bad advice. GTX 660 costs the same and is much faster.
